At the heart of homelessness
Slide " " I was in a state of panic and didn’t know where to go. I kept hearing about La rue des Femmes and finally I called. The first person who picked up the phone was speaking only in French, I was crying and kept talking. The receptionist put me through Louise. Her voice was so warm. She told me : don’t worry, we won’t let you outside… She was an angel to me! Stella (fictive name) Testimonials
